The name McCabe in Ireland is derived from the native Gaelic Mac Caba Sept who were originally Gallowglass warriors from Scotland in servitude to the O'Reillys and to the O'Rourkes. They settled in County Cavan and it is here as well as in County Monaghan that the majority of descendants can still be found.

A Sept is an ancient form of a Clan and is a group of people whose ancestors all bore the same surname and inhabited the same locality.
